Stone Arthur & Seat Sandal
By Neil Haslewood
25th September 2009

As I near the end of completing Wainwrights Eastern Fells I decide to walk from Grasmere to Stone Arthur (leaving only Hart Side left to do). It was a very overcast day but all my fells were out of the cloud. After completing Stone Arthur I walked up to Great Rigg and then on to Fairfield. Then it was a steep descent to Grisedale Hause and re-ascent to Seat Sandal. I returned to Grasmere via the South Ridge. It was very windy on the tops but there was no rain. I met some walkers who had seen me via my website.
